She comes by it honestly…

No’Donnell’s father was only a part time Bozo the Clown:

“Who told you I was Bozo?” he wanted to know.

“Your son,” I said, at which point he confirmed that yes, he was Bozo, but not an official, full-time certified Bozo, more of a part-time Bozo.

Just like his daughter. The rubber nose falls not far from the tree. Or something.

    her parents had 6 kids. what else did he do other than be a part-time bozo? i’m not sure what the going rate was for part-time bozos back in the 60s, but it couldn’t have been enough to support a family of 8.

    I take exception with your image.

    It was neither with her father nor with her innate Bozohood that No’Donnell was separated at birth. It was with whatever a benevolent nature had decreed she should make do with as a brain.

    As much as I love piling on… why are we supposed to care about her Father’s part-time employment? He’s not running for Senate, his crazy daughter is.

    C’mon, people! Let’s stay focused!

  5. I don’t trust adults who dress up as clowns. Period. There’s something wrong with that.

  6. I agree with TommySpoon’s comment, but I’ll go him one better: you’ve heard it said that there’s no such thing as bad publicity. But what about NO publicity?

    Why is no one discussing the “bearded communist” Chris Coons, and his agenda or ideas? Foreclosures are skyrocketing; Heath insurance premiums are rising rapidly; Choice of coverage is evaporating (despite all of Obama’s moonbeam and butterfly promises); Doctors are fleeing, in droves, the MediCaid system; Unemployment is STILL at ten percent; Manufacturing is down – AGAIN – for another quarter; Jobs are STILL going overseas; GitMo is STILL open and this admin is STILL doing rendition….

    O’Donnell, O’Schmonnell. It’s a great big political circle jerk. Eeeew…

    But what will the “bearded communist” Chris Coons do about any of the hard issues facing our nation????

      Locomotivebreath –

      Welcome to MPS, and that is quite an introduction you give us. I checked your website, and I think it is safe to say that you and I are about polar opposites.

      The thing that I would urge you to think about is cause and effect. Everything you list is the effect of 30+ years of conservative fiscal policies enacted by the Supply-side economists that have wreaked havoc on the United States. O’Donnell and her ilk, and the rest of the Right Wing Nut Jobs are only proposing more of the same. If your concerns really are the issues around the economy, I urge you to look at our economic policies including all the Free Trade treaties. You’ll find your scoundrel there, not some bearded commie hiding under your bed.

      As for O’Donnell herself, if I were you I’d be encouraging the left to continue mocking her; she’s a great distraction that keeps the media from scrutinizing the role that the Koch brothers and a handful of other wingnuts are playing in your alleged grassroots Tea Party. You guys are being played for fools and stooges, and so good luck with that country you want to take back. You’re only going to get more of the same.

      Regards,

      Tengrain

  8. Thanks, Tengrain. I like to mix things up a bit.

    I agree – we are political polar opposites, but I will not consider your “cause and effect” premise because, 1): it is severely flawed.

    The free market which you want to paint as the demon seed responsible many of the modern world’s ills is not free, at all. It is highly regulated and severely manipulated on almost every level. Lobbyists are employed and billions of influence dollars peddled in order to keep the gub’mint’s strangling tentacles at bay. The result is a hideously deformed chimera which tends to feed on itself – and costs everybody more money.

    Will Rogers was correct when he opined that the only indigenous criminal class in America is Congress. When they are in session, hang on to your wallet.

    2): Your post was about Bozo the clown being Princess Leia’s long lost father or something, and I don’t really care if your candidate is a bearded communist or a bearded lady under my bed. What I responded to was a legitimate concern: Why post about silly bozo stuff when you liberals could be addressing the hard issues and promoting your candidate? Or maybe I misunderstand the point of your blog?
